Police investigators are probing the death of a 32-year-old Vietnamese national, who was found dead in the compound of the Durban Backlands construction site where a hotel and shopping mall complex is being built.
The man has been identified as Nguyen Nigoc.
Investigators said he was found in the compound last evening with a laceration to the back of the head. They believe he may have been murdered.
The construction site is located just next door to the Chinese embassy and it is believed that a Chinese businessman is behind the project.
Two persons have since been taken into custody and are assisting investigators with their probe of the incident.
